School & Coach GroupsFind out more about the services we offer for Tour, Coach & School Groups below.
We offer services to accommodate school trips, as well as facilities to receive coaches in the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH) where our Little Green Kiosk is based. Our River Severn Tours travel through the Ironbridge Gorge, and are therefore a great opportunity for students to learn the history of the river during the Industrial Revolution, river safety, how the Severn valley gorge was formed plus much more. We therefore recommend our tours as an educational experience to schools around the country.
We cater to specific subjects including river knowledge, Industrial Revolution based history whilst the children have fun on the river. We allow each student to row on request or they can relax whilst the guide rows you along the river.
We have risk assessments and full insurance details available on request and we can tailor trip times to suit your itinerary. All ages are allowed on our boat trips on the river Severn.
Educational river tours for all ages!
We offer a variety of competitive prices for any age range. The price listed is all inclusive of the rafting tours and equipment hire. Professional photographs are taken at the start of the tour and a selection will be emailed to you at no extra cost.
Our qualified guides have safely carried thousands of rafters during their career ranging in age from toddlers to senior citizens. We travel 1.2 miles of the Severn River in 25 foot, 16 passenger, oar powered rafts. We do the rowing while the guests enjoy the scenery. We pass through the heart of the Industrial Revolution on calm stretches spending an hour on the water before transporting you the short distance back to the Wharfage car park in our mini-bus for a round trip of 90 minute trip.
Our head guide has been working on rivers since 1992 and we cater for families, the retired, school groups and tour companies. We understand the busy day of a Party leader; we are friendly and extremely flexible with your schedule.
Coach tours visiting Ironbridge for only 1 to 2 hours.
Many tour groups visiting Ironbridge have limited time before moving onto their next destination. Shropshire Raft Tours has a solution for our coach group participants. This service is only available by advance booking (Groups of 16+). As guests arrive at the Wharfage car park at the designated coach parking (TF8 7NH) we fit them with their buoyancy aids before our quick safety briefing and boarding the raft. Our mini 30 minute trip takes them under the world famous Iron Bridge with a fully guided tour along the way. Our group rate is £8.75 per person which includes the return minibus shuttle back to the Wharfage car park.
